A man from Kenosha is being held on bail of $ 5,000 from the OWI-7.
Richard Wilkerson, 49, was charged Monday on Monday with OWI-7, operating during his revocation, possession of narcotics, possession of drug paraphernalia, and disorderly behavior.
According to the criminal complaint, a Wisconsin State Patrol soldier was stopped at 9:43 a.m. on October 3 by a passerby who said there had been a vehicle rollover on westbound Highway K in the city of Paris. When the soldiers arrived at the scene, they found a limo on the side with several witnesses standing nearby who referred to Wilkerson as the driver.
The complaint states that Wilkerson appeared disoriented and said he knew he shouldn’t be driving but said he was on his way to a job. Wilkerson failed a field sobriety test at the crime scene, according to the complaint, but a preliminary breath test showed no presence of alcohol. Believing he was under the influence of narcotics, Wilkerson was taken for a blood test. Results of this test were not yet available.
During a search, the police found a substance in a container in Wilkerson’s pocket, which he admitted to be heroin, along with a glass pipe, according to the report.
